If you ask us, we think the perfect craft room isn’t complete without a jar of Mod Podge (and an unlimited amount of fabric!). The all-in-one glue, sealer and finish is really like the Swiss Army Knife of the crafting world. In just a matter of minutes, you can take a tired, old dresser from drab to fab or personalize a serving tray with your favorite photo memories. When paired with custom fabric, wallpaper or gift wrap featuring designs from the Spoonflower Marketplace, it’s safe to say the only limit is your creativity. Get ready to think outside the decoupaged box with these six DIY projects.

Feeling the winter blues? The cold days of January can make anyone stir-crazy. Instead of staring at the same old furniture, cheer up your space with this easy weekend project using our go-to home déc material: woven wallpaper. Whether you use an old bookcase at home or pick one up from a tag sale, this refresh is guaranteed to help you see your reading nook in a new light! Follow along as Spoonflower’s president, Allison Sloan Polish, takes you through the DIY.
Whoever said wallpaper was meant just for your walls never met the Spoonflower community. Removable, renter-friendly wallpaper offers the freedom to use your wallpaper in unexpected places like your laptop, desk, bathroom drawers and even your stairs. When it comes to stairs, you come and go on them every day, so why not brighten your way!
With the smooth, water-activated option, your project is wallpaper paste free and the woven, peel & stick wallpaper is ready for install once the paper backing has been removed. It’s just that easy! See some of our favorite wallpapered stair projects and find out how you can recreate these looks using designs from the Spoonflower Marketplace.
1. We can’t help but stare at this playful combination of bold colors and geometric prints.
Some projects are born of inspiration; some are born of necessity. I encountered the latter when some cough syrup spilled in a bathroom drawer, and it was not about to scrub off the cheap off-white liner. And then I realized that cheap off-white drawer liner is not really a vibe I want in my space—so why not turn lemons into lemonade?
Spoonflower’s Smooth wallpaper in this elegant Paeonia in Coral and Mint on Navy design by willowlanetextiles saved the day. You could easily use Woven wallpaper and skip step 4. This is the perfect Saturday afternoon project: I was done with the whole thing in under an hour and thrilled with the results!
Weekends are the best for getting started on a new DIY. This weekend, I’ll be playing around with our Woven Peel and Stick wallpaper. Do you have any wallpaper projects you’ve been itching to try?
